I can absolutely not live without lotion. Okay, maybe I can but I don’t want to. Haha! Fact is, I have dry skin. It’s not the cracking or peeling kind, fortunately. However, it can become a bit itchy and uncomfortable whenever I don’t put lotion on. It doesn’t help that I’m usually at home in an air conditioned room (which causes dryness!). The summer heat and my pregnancy combined also contributes to the dryness of my skin.
To check what condition my skin really is in though, I took this Dry Skin Test by Vaseline and this is the result I got.
To take the test yourself, go to this link: http://www.vaseline.ph/skin-index-test. As you can see, my skin apparently suffers from mild dryness, which means I definitely need to regularly apply lotion before it gets worse. Vaseline even recommended some of their lotions that I can use and I was happy to see that the lotion I’ve been regularly using, the Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Lotion, is on the list. I love it because it really works!
So imagine my delight when I received this Vaseline kit in the mail!
Through this kit, I finally discovered why Vaseline body lotions are so effective to combat dryness. It’s this wonder jelly that can heal burns, rashes, chapped skin, cuts, bruises and more. This wonder jelly is what we all know as Petroleum Jelly, something that has been a staple in most households, like ours, because of its healing properties and outstanding skin benefits. It’s my favorite thing to put on my lips when they get super dry and chapped. I swear no lip balm has ever healed my lips the way Petroleum Jelly has.
So, I was surprised to realize that this very ingredient is now present in the New Vaseline body lotions. The new Vaseline Lotions now have micro-droplets of Vaseline Jelly that works deep from within the epidermis to bring back lost moisture and heal dry skin, combating the effects of exposure to damaging environmental factors like extreme temperatures, low humidity, harsh cleansers, and hot water.
I tried the Vaseline Intensive Care Deep Restore body lotion and was really happy with the way it moisturized my skin. It’s white, very light and is absorbed easily by the skin. Best of all, it’s not at all greasy! It’s super perfect for the hot summer season. And for pregnant moms like me, it’s also great for moisturizing preggy bellies that are continuously growing and stretching, making the skin all over itchy.
But don’t just take my word for it. Check out what happened to these leaves. The ones on the left, which doesn’t have any Vaseline jelly on it, are so dry and wrinkled. The leaves on the right, on the other hand, are the exact opposite. Because they were covered with Vaseline jelly, the leaves remained vibrant and moisturized.
Check out the results of the ultimate test that Vaseline took to showcase and prove the healing power of its new body lotions. Vaseline took the ultimate test when it mounted a live billboard along C5 last April 8-10. See the live billboard from this link bit.ly/vaselineleafbillboard or watch below.
Real leaves were used, and half of them were covered with Vaseline jelly, while the other half had none. After three days, the difference was visible. The side that was coated with Vaseline jelly remained vibrant and moisturized, while the other half dried completely. If Vaseline can keep a leaf vibrant and moisturized, imagine what it could do to dry skin.
The new Vaseline lotions are available in leading department stores and drug stores with the following SRPs:
100ml – Php 69.30
200ml – Php 126.00
400ml – Php 225.00
So, if you’re plagued with dry skin, worry no more! #HEALWithVaseline!
